It is with great sadness and disbelief that we must announce the passing of Andy Rainey on October 12th, 2015 at the age of 51. A beloved man, Andy leaves behind his wife Joan, sons Ryan (Lucia) and Kelly (Kyla), grandsons Mylo and Maverick, mother Toby, father and step-mother Geoff and Tanya, brothers D’arcy (Gina) and Mike (sons Curtis, Jacob, Hunter, Maxwell), and many friends, colleagues, and aquaintances.
Born in Ottawa on January 14th, 1964, Andy grew up in Ontario, BC, and Alberta. He attended the University of Alberta, earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Commerce. Afterward, he moved with his young family to Burnaby, BC, working odd jobs before coming to Comox in 1992.
In Comox, Andy and Joan took over Bounce Mania, bringing joy to Valley residents young and old at countless community events. In 2001, Andy joined the Ford team in Courtenay, where he worked as the comptroller and DJ until his passing. In his free time, Andy loved to snowboard, and will be missed on the slopes of Mt. Washington. A man who had time for all and could deny none, he will be remebered for his generosity, his wide smile, and Andy will be forever in our hearts.
A service will be held on Thursday, October 22nd, at the Union Bay Community Hall, 5401 South Island Hwy, Union Bay, from 1 PM – 4 PM. To send a condolence to the family, please send to Comox Valley Funeral Home.
